A tragic bus crash in Upper Marlboro, Maryland killed a pedestrian Thursday July 31, 2014. The victim, Patsy Stokes Burton, was crossing the street in the Prince George's County seat, when a bus struck her despite her presence in a crosswalk. The bus carried her more than twenty feet.
Reportedly the collision was recorded on a nearby security camera. No charges have yet been filed against the bus driver. Ms. Burton was taking mail to an Upper Marlboro post office on behalf of her employer, a doctor.
It seems inconceivable that some sort of citations will not be forthcoming for the bus operator.
Our sympathies go out to her surviving spouse, Mack Burton.
